I hope it's ok to post this here.
You might have read about Mary Kidson, the Mother accused of poisoning her Child by administering Natural desiccated thyroid extract, hydrocortisone and oestrogen tablets – with malicious intent to cause her grievous bodily harm.
Please see independent.co.uk/news/uk/c... to read the first day’s reporting of this case.
The barrister for the prosecution has accused Mary of "Doctor Shopping" until she found one who would give her the diagnosis she wanted.
The trial started last Monday 13 October 2014. The defence case, hopefully will start some time during the course of the coming week and the barrister urgently needs your help. You can help by telling him how much "Doctor Shopping" you were subjected to before you found one that helped you ( private or NHS) – or – did you never find anyone to help you – so you are still ‘Doctor Shopping’?.
So, please let us know how many GP’s/endocrinologists/other medical practitioners that you had to go through before finally finding one that helped you – and over how many years did it take you to do this.
It will help greatly if you write (in brackets) the number of medical practitioners you have gone through at the bottom of your message.
Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org (If you are also a member of TPAUK and have replied to our email, please don't answer again as we don't want to count anyone twice.)
We are really appreciative of the help you can give us and if you are a member of any other online thyroid forums or thyroid facebook pages, please post this message there too and ask them to take part.
Many thanks for your help.
